Winter 2018 edition of Irish Roots Magazine published

The Winter 2018 issue of Irish Roots, Ireland's only independent genealogy magazine, has been published.

Inside this edition, family historians can find out how to research Irish Catholic priests, nuns and monks; discover more about unusual and unique old Irish occupations; and learn about 19th-century Temperance Societies in Australia.

There's also a guide to researching ancestors in County Fermanagh, a step-by-step approach to using DNA in cases of unknown parentage, and some useful advice for using social media to help you discover more ancestors in Ireland. You can also learn about the Irish Archives Resoutce, which, while not designed specifically for genealogists, may still prove useful in your ancestral hunt.

With a round up of what Irish family history societies and other groups have been up to, my own quarterly review of the latest record releases, plus other observations and comment about the world of Irish genealogy, Irish Roots makes sure you're informed about all recent developments and happenings. And as if that's not enough, you'll also find Q&As with a professional genealogist, the final part of an A–Z of Irish genealogical terminology, letters to the Editor, details of the latest books, and much more.

Irish Roots is available as a paper magazine and as a digital publication. Find out more, and see a three-page sample of this new edition, at
